for the interview. >> and another political big wig takes exception on a big question of where he plans to send his kids to school. >> first off, it is none of your business. >>> and we begin with the debt ceiling fight, and the republicans unable to agree to disagree, and here is the level of confusion coming from the gop on the ongoing debt debate. this morning the washington post set the stage for a potential breakthrough reporting on the editorial page right here that grover norquist, the anti-tax guru of the right said that allowing the bush era tax cuts to expire would not be a violation of the tax pledge that nearly every member of congress has resigned which is a significant concession. problem solved? not exactly. within hours norquist told my colleague chris jansing this right here on msnbc on jansing & company. >> i can be clear, americans for tax reform would oppose any effort to weaken, reduce or not continue the 2001-2003 bush tax cuts and any changes of the taxes should be kept separate from the budget deal. >> moments ago, the post released audio of norquist supporting their editori
's to resume their position because there's an answer to the big question. >> lilia luciano on verdict watch for us in orlando. thank you so much. >>> i want to bring in our legal panel to talk about deliberations and which side did a better job of proving its case. we have diane dimond and former prosecutor wendy murphy on the right side of your screen. thanks to both of you for joining us today. >> sure. >> before we get started, i want to play a bite from defense lawyer jose baez who on monday raised the issue of reasonable doubt, telling the jury they have it. take a listen. >> these are the facts that you have heard. and these are the facts that prove beyond a reasonable doubt that casey anthony is guilty of murder in the first degree. reasonable doubt lives here. it's throughout the case. it's right here. it's with these individuals. it's with those individuals. it's everywhere. you can't trust this evidence. you can't. >> all right. so we started with the prosecutor first. wendy, let me start with you. did the prosecution remove any reasonable doubt? many say that jose baez may have a
not be willing or able to, seemingly, take on big tasks. >> that happened all this week. kristin is live at the white house. a lot of talk. we're one day closer to that deadline. what can we expect to hear from the president in the next hour? >> hi there, richard. we expect the president to continue to push to get a big deal. what's a big deal? about $4 trillion in deaf sigz reductions over the next decade. at the end of last week, it looked like he and speaker boehner were moving towards the same page in terms of trying to get a big deal. that fell apart over the weekend. so we expect the president to resume calls for a big deal to say now is the time to seize the moment. there will be political pain on both sides. what he means by that is the democrats will have to come to the table over entitlements, making small changes to things like social security and medicare and the republicans will need to come to the table in terms of rolling back tax break for wealthy corporations and americans. as you said, richard, he's going to hammer this point that they will continue to work until they g
the washington post, and one from what we played on msnbc earlier on jansing & company. >> well, it is a big deal as it was originally recordednd mr. hoyer in the whip meeting this morning mentioned it, so if mr. norquist was taking a position that is reasonable that expiring tax cuts under existing law were not tax increases that creates a lot of breathing room for us and head room. >> a lot. >> but my understanding is that he has gone back on that, and so revenues have to be part of it, and, you know, when i talk candidly to many of the republican colleagues, they understand that. and they are worried about the revenues and not getting the cuts, and there is anxiety on the net level of negotiation, but most folks understand that when we are spending 22% of the gdp and collecting revenues lower than the eisenhower era at 15%, that doesn't work. >> congressman, under the gun today? if not today, a deal by friday? what do you think? >> well, honestly, i don't know, but what i do know is that we have to have a deal and we cannot allow america to default. if you are eric cantor and want to have more
republicans. that would offer a big challenge to mitt romney. >> keith, why is at this moment rick perry holding out? >> i wish i could tell you what's going on inside rick perry's head. i think he's probably deciding if he's a legitimate candidate. if he can win the gop nomination. i think he is threatened by michele bachmann. i think she's sort of obviously protects the same type of people that are part of her base, part of his base. there's the question of electablity. if he wins the gop nomination, could he win the presidency? could he beat obama obama? i'm not convinced he could. >> what do you think, john, who would be the builtest threat to barack obama of three? >> i think romney would be the biggest threat. i think perry would come in second and i think that bachmann could would come in third. mitt romney has the organization out there. he has a compelling story when it comes to turn around artists. he turned around the olympics. he turned and massachusetts and turned around -- i think people want a turn around artist. perry has a story to tell about what he's done in texas as f
a serious big-time compromise. have the tea partiers handed him a huge advantage? has he won the reasonable middle? could barack obama win next year even with a 9.2% jobless rate? it would be tough, but some smart politicos say not impossible. finally, righter than you know. is michelle bachmann too right or just right? with the republican party, which moved right with goldwater, right again with reagan in 1980, and with newt in 1994, be right there for the lady from minnesota? has the hatred of obama made her the perfect champion for a year of attack? i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, "the washington post," bob woodward, the national journalist, jamie tarabay, abc's andrea mitchell and "the chicago tribune"'s clarence page. the nasty unemployment numbers are a psychological problem for the country and a huge political burden for this president. has the tea party's flirtation with default on the national debt handed barack obama a huge win, while the vast middle of the country, the middle that decides elections, see the president as the grownup? take a look at poll num
the debt ceiling to go up and take cuts to the big three off the table. mcconnell late today put out his last chance plan. >> i would advocate that we pass legislation giving the president the authority, the authority to request of us an increase in the debt ceiling that would take us past the end of his term. that is what he has said. he said he will not sign a debt ceiling that does not take us past the end of his term. >> so mcconnell's plan would allow republicans to vote against the debt increase, but it would allow the president to increase the debt. the downside for the righties? cuts to the big three would be off the table. that's been their mission all along. the tea party jumped all over mcconnell, right wing blogger eric rashgson said mitch mcconnell is making a historic capitulation. consider sending mcconnell a weasel. john boehner is on board with the senate leader mcconnell. he ran over to fox news and did major cya. >> i think everybody believe there is needs to be a backup plan if we cannot come to an agreement, and i think mitch has done good work. >> backup plan? at th
because of the economy being so precarious. does that mean we're going to have to push the big changes to deal with the deficit and debt, going to have to go down the road a bit and to the long term, maybe more than ten years? >> chris, i don't know about more than ten years, but certainly as you know, simpson bowles, senator simpson and former chief of staff erskine bowles, in their report they proposed making substantial cuts, raising revenues and across the board with all items of expansion. but they said in the near term, meaning the next year of so, we need to be very careful that we did not have the opposite effect by dampening down the struggling economy, obviously, as we saw today, which will decrease revenues and make the problem worse, not better. so in the short term, i agree with the bowles/simpson suggestion that we be very careful in the short term. there's no doubt, however, in the white house yesterday, or thursday -- yesterday -- there was a clear agreement that this was a serious, serious challenge that confronted us and it demanded at all of us try to come together a
have a big jump in revenue. obama has been saying let's thai the bush tax cuts are going to lapse and we are going to extend the ones for the middle class. republicans are afraid to let him do that up front. it would kill momentum for a tax reform. >> but, but, but why just get rid of the bush tax cuts. if they are so awful, why not get rid of all of them. get rid of all of them for everybody. if tax cuts are the worst thing ever, the bush tax cuts, get rid of the bush tax cuts for everybody and raise billions in revenue. >> right. i think we could probably figure it out sitting around the table. i don't think it's that difficult. they are locked in in political terms. it's a much different issue to them. you can make rational compromises and deals here. the problem is, how do they do it. what's happening is they are at the point where they realize the consequences. at some point, they realize they have to do something other than hold the ground saying this is it. we're not going to change anything. we are at that point and we have little time to work with. >> howard dean, look wh
? >> they are being called to testify in parliament. the big story today is that the political parties are all going to get together, go to parliament and they're all agreed to support a motion that rupert murdoch, his bid to acquire bskyb, the cable operator here, should not go through. that is really rare, ali. it's not legally binding. who knows if he'll care or take notice. the other big story making news here is that the senate commerce committee chairman jay rockefeller is calling for an investigation saying, look, if "news of the world" was hacking u.s. citizens and 9/11 victims. he says this should be taken seriously and there should be an investigation. the big topic on that is how much is it going to affect rupert murdoch's empire in the u.s. as well? >> costing a lot of money in the stock. cost the stock about 14%, more than $7 billion since this really thickened about a week ago. let's talk about this former survivor producer facing expedition to mexico on a charge he murdered his wife. >> right. a judge basically said there was enough evidence to send him back to mexico to face trial, r
. >> the proposal would have budget sate h savings of $500 million. -- $500 billion. also it calls for big changes to medicare and social security. >> i think at the end of the day, what the overwhelming majority of americans are saying, fix this. and if it takes a little compromise from both. >> but the is plan faces a harsh reality. tough procedural obstacles means the proposal won't be ready ahead of the august 2 debt ceiling deadline. and a key block of conservatives is already saying no way. >> we know it's going to hurt job creation. we know it's bad for small businesses. we're not going to go for this type of plan. >> with time running out, harry reid, who is still work on a fall back plan with mitch mcconnell says he's now waiting for a signal from house gop leaders. >> we have a plan to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house of representatives, we really are -- all of our work here would be for not. >> now there is also talk of folding elements of the gang of six plan into this so-called fallback plan being worked out between senators reid and senator mitch mcconnell. but
. >> announcer: this past year alone there's been a 67% spike in companies embracing the cloud-- big clouds, small ones, public, private, even hybrid. your data and apps must move easily and securely to reach many clouds, not just one. that's why the network that connects, protects, and lets your data move fearlessly through the clouds means more than ever. >>> jack cafferty is here with the cafferty file now. people can watch you stream on a mobile device, an ipad, jack. this is great. >> i have no idea what that means. but i'll trust you. >> it's really good. >> republican congresswoman michele bachmann is a rising star of sorts in a lacklustre to say the least field of gop candidates who hope to challenge president obama next year. bachmann came out on top in three separate polls of likely iowa republican voters last week. go figure. my shael bhaukman's husband marc marcus runs a christian counseling business. former clients say he encourages homosexual patients to try to change their sexual orientation, or at least oppress it. it's called pray away the gay. in an interview, marcus bachm
. how exciting. >> they match. >> they do match. >> the big news of the day, yesterday, of course, was moody's coming out and saying, listen, we don't expect this to happ happen. the chances are slight this is going to happen. just the chance it may happen, we are going to downgrade america's credit rating. >> we are going to put it on credit watch to downgrade it or we will downgrade it if it happens. first of all, the rating agencies were behind the curve during the whole financial crisis and they took a lot of heat for that. now they are trying to be more proactive. when you have a congress that refuses to address the issue, what do they do? it's not a shocker. it's another symbol of how dysfunctional things are in washington and what the stakes are and how dangerous it is. you know a few people across the globe. >> i like it when mika says it better. >> say international financeer. >> i would think these are trying times for banks across the world. look at ireland a second time. it's spread to italy. we have all heard -- greece, portugal. it's all across europe. it's coming to
to happen here with rupert murdoch and his son james tomorrow? >> well, that is certainly, that is the big question. and rupert murdoch and his son james, and rebekah brooks, who are appearing before the select committee have to be so careful, and so careful in fact, that rupert murdoch's biographers saying he is in rehearsals and being coached by aides and he is walking a fine line, because on one hand, he is under oath, and so like he and his son and rebekah brooks, they can't lie. if they do lie, it is a crime. so they have to be careful what they say. they can't mislead this group, but at the same time, they don't want to give too much away either, because this is such a reprehensible difficult and negative story that any facts on how to what extent the criminality of how far it went up the ladder at any of the companies as the facts come out, it could well, we could well see a drop from the bottom just out of news corporation. today, already, tamron, we saw a 5% jump in news corp stock in australia. so that the wheels of this amazing story just keep rolling along, and you mentioned in
is it shows that the united states system is not set up to do big things. when a crisis like this comes up they cannot do a deal that would show stability to the world. >> ronald reagan and tip o'neal made big deals. in the 1990s, bill clinton and the republican congress made big deals. and mika, it's not over yet, but it has gotten to the point already that this is damaging the reputation of the united states the longer it goes, and i think we're talking about it damaging our reputation more every day that the crisis goes on. >> i think both sides would agree with that. after a weekend of meetings resulting in yet another impasse, president obama is canceling two fundraisers today to continue negotiations. senate majority leader harry reid said the talks broke down last night because of the republicans insistence on a short-term deal, and their plan would cut $2.7 trillion over the next ten years. officials say it raises the debt ceiling but no tax increases. and he salaid out his latest solution. >> there will be a two-stage possible. it's not physically possible to do this in one step.
in the senate, even as house republicans double down on symbolic spending cuts. the big breakthrough coming from the newly resurrected gang of six, a plan to reduce deficits by nearly $4 trillion in the coming decade. president obama championed the plan tuesday, and it emerged with the support of 49 senators on both sides of the aisle. house republicans, on the other hand, spent all day tuesday debating, and last night passing a cut, cap and balance, ccb proposal, that has little or no chance of surviving in the senate. senator chuck schumer described it today as dead on arrival and faces the promise of a veto if it were to reach the president, and despite digging in their heels against new ref gnaw and in favor of more spending cuts tea party walsh had a hard time explaining what cuts were in the house bill. >> why doesn't it name the cuts? >> it calls for $111 billion in cuts, chris. >> where? >> in the bill. >> you've criticized the president for not having a plan and you don't have one. >> all right. we're joined now by nbc's luke russert who covers capitol hill and nbc's mick viqueira at th

wants the big deal that would include perhaps cuts in medicare, medicaid and even social security, and with them tax increases. john boehner responded quickly. no to any tax increases, period. well, my question tonight, do republicans want to deal with really tanking the economy to say no to taxes? the face of the deadlock. the president said both sides have people who refuse to compromise. tonight one from each camp. democrat and tea party republican. i'll ask them what price they'll will be to see the country pay so they can stick to their positions. >>> also, not so excellent adventure. both michele bachmann and rick santorum signed a so-called marriage vow from a conservative group that suggested african-americans had a better family life under slavery. who writes this stuff? and worse yet who would sign on to such stuff? by the way, bachmann leads the pack in a new iowa poll, and a scandal keeps getting bigger. a report the tabloid targeted former prime minister gordon brown's voicemail and bank account. how far will this scandal go? and let me finish with a need for presiden
unpublished research that indicates it might be simply big time peptide disorders. we don't know. i don't think it's as simple as trying to pass by the kentucky fried checken outlet without going in. this is a serious medical problem. we need to know more about it before we know how to treat it right. >> not that i disagree with you, governor but sometimes we reach for more complex reasons when the simpler reasons are in front of us. the tv remote control clicker and video games. this nation is filled with kids from 8 to 18 who never get off the couch. look at the advertisements for the real to life video games we have around us. that's all they play. they don't go out and play catch or run down the block to get milk. >> i think that's true. i didn't mean to say it had nothing to do with it but i think it's going to be a complex set of problems. it's going to defie easy political solutions. >> we'll move on to the budget. nine of ten states with the highest obesity led by mississippi, alabama and west virginia. they lead the nation in diabetes and high blood pressure. it's, you know, ob
a deal, it starts to weaken the white house i guess. >> reporter: a big deal of deficit reduction obviously is feeling very elusive and chances of doing something like that seem to be very slim at this point. in terms of the debt ceiling, they are very much relying on a plan being worked out by senators reed and mcconnell, top democrat and republican in the senate, to move something forward so the senate can take a lead and the house can then follow suit maybe making some changes. i think right now that's the best hope. i do want to tell you looking at the president's schedule today, it's mighty bare. his normal presidential briefing and meetings with senior advisers but certainly there's a lot of room built in there for any sort of communication he needs to do with congress. >> right. there was talk they are working through the weekend so they are doing everything possible to come to an agreement. >> over night too. >> u.s. and libya hosting secret face to face talks since the libyan conflict began four months ago. the point of the weekend meeting was to send a clear message to m
is it about the american people or one big re-election campaign? we report, you decide. >> meanwhile, the united states government arming a mexican drug cartel for war? and when people said hey, this doesn't smell right, a brand new report says that's when the cover-up began. yes, the cover-up, brian. >> yes, a grandmother confronted by a naked intruder. >> again? >> not in my house! >> be strong. there's always a way to protect yourself. use it! >> but this crook picked on the wrong lady. "fox & friends" the right show for you because we start right now. >> come on in, folks and welcome to our tuesday telecast. we have lots to talk about because the president of the united states and the speaker of the house last night decided it was time to go in front of the american public to make their case. >> again? as brian just said about the other story, again? >> right. >> how many times do we have to have a press conference to try to figure out what the hell to do with our debt? it's one press conference after another and i think the american people are getting darned tired of it. >>
problem. >> i could go on and on. tom says the fault lies with the system that allows big money, party loyalty and special interests to decide who gets elected. how we started moving down this path. >> very thoughtful responses from all of you. thank you very much. that's it for us. we'll be back tomorrow morning at 6:00 am eastern. >> cnn newsroom with kyra phillips starts right now. hi, kyra. >> hi, guys. good morning. >>> two breaking news stories this morning. first of all, the nfl, it looks like, they might have come together on a deal here. nfl.com is reporting that the players and the owners have agreed on something that will end the lockout. we're following it right now. we're just getting the information in. that means that the players vote will happen later today in more of a formal setting. training camp could start as early as wednesday now, we've been told. david mattingly has been following this for us. he has been live out of atlanta every day, at least he was last week when those negotiations were taking place. david, did you just get word that something came forward ju
to that coming up. but first, president obama and congress go back to work today in one of the big items on their to-do list is a deal to cult the budget deficit and raise the federal debt limit. joining us now is cbs news senior white house correspondent bill plante. bill, good morning. what is the latest on these negotiations? >> well, chris, in one word, they are deadlocked. still. there's been no further schedule of talks between the white house and congress. republicans remain opposed to any kind of new taxes. and democrats are just as adamant that there has to be some kind of new revenue. congress has raised the debt ceiling 102 times since it was first instituted in 1917. and ten times in the last decade. but never before have the stakes been so high, or democrats and republicans so unwilling to budge. norm ornstein is a longtime student of congress. >> normally what you see in these negotiations is tough stances, but at least some willingness to go, not halfway, but a quarter of the way to where the other side is. >> reporter: the gop is now united in its opposition to raising th
, actually, if they know there's a big deal behind it will be quite -- wouldn't they, john heilemann? >> i think so. the time is tough right now. listen to harry reid and mitch mcconnell who know how the senate works and how long it takes to do the following things, to reform medicare and tax reform. they are things that typically can take many months to get done. >> isn't it a surprise? it wasn't a surprise the show started at 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. it's no surprise we have a deadline. >> to build the legislation is not something that can happen in the span of four or five days. you can't. the key issue is what obama will be wanting to see is the outlines of a deal where he has a good assurance the outlines of the deal can get past once the meat is put on the bones. if that's the case and the markets see that, everything will be fine. whether it's a few days extension or a couple weeks, it's going to take a lot to get to that point. there's no consensus on the house side among house republicans in favor of what the gang of six is doing. as we saw in the film, the video, house democr
